Medical Marijuana Conditions for Virginia - Qualifying Conditions:

Medical Marijuana Conditions for Virginia are as follows (Updated February 6, 2020):

Virginia solely allows for the consumption of low-THC oil (0.5% max) that contains at least 15% CBD, or concentrates with at least 50mg of THCA per ml (maximum 5% THC). Qualifying conditions to become a medical card holder in Virginia include:

  • The original affirmative defense law was passed in 2015 for
    • Intractable Epilepsy
    • and expanded in 2018 for any condition as recommended by a practitioner.

Affirmative defense defeats or mitigates the legal consequences of the defendant’s otherwise unlawful conduct. While it will not be legal, technically, to possess the oils, a patient or their caregiver would be able to present their registration if they were stopped by law enforcement or in a court of law as their defense for possession of the oil.

To assert the affirmative defense, an unexpired valid written certification issued from a board-registered physician and a current active patient and/or caregiver registration issued by the Board of Pharmacy is necessary.

Affirmative defense guidelines:

  1. Keep your certification with your oil at all times.
  2. Present your certification if questioned by law enforcement.
  3. If not accepted and charged with possession, call an attorney or ask for court-appointed counsel.
  4. Present your signed certification 10 days prior to trial as directed.

In 2017, Virginia approved a regulatory program for the in-state production of medical cannabis oils by five providers initially, one per Health Service Area (HSA), who will grow, extract, dispense and deliver medical cannabis oils. These licensed providers​ are called “pharmaceutical processors” in the Code and are simply vertically-integrated dispensaries, meaning everything from growth through dispensation is done on one site by one provider. Patients and caregivers may now register with the program. Once facilities are operational in late 2019, patients will be able to fill their recommendation at one of five “pharmaceutical processors” in Virginia.  More Info.
